New York Yankees vs. Houston Astros: Jordan Montgomery vs. Lance McCullers Jr.

The Yankees turn to Jordan Montgomery to snap their two-game losing streak.

Last night's loss to the Astros stung. The Yankees made things interesting with a rally in the ninth inning, but they couldn't come up with a win. Maybe that energy will carry over into tonight's game!

Unfortunately the Yankees don't get a reprieve on the pitching side. Lance McCullers Jr. gets the ball for the Astros, and he owns a 3.40 ERA. He's a tough pitcher with a vicious curveball. Meanwhile, Jordan Montgomery looks to build on his success. First pitch is at 7:05 PM and the game can be seen on WPIX.
